What are the pros and cons of doing 100 blog posts in 100 days?:
- It might boost my Google rankings
- It may help people get to know me, they may like me, and be more inclined to do business with me
- It's forcing me to come up with ideas
- It's forcing me to practice my writing skills
- I might be able to create a talk out of it
- I might learn some unexpected stuff
- I am becoming more aware of how readable/unreadable blogs are
- Even if they are short posts I can come back and add to them, and they will increase in value as an asset on the website
- It may be a waste of time, nothing may come of it
- It's time consuming
- It may help people get to know me, they may dislike me, and be less inclined to do business with me
- Trying to publish something every day, it could get sloppy, and give a bad impression
- Writing feels rushed
- Adds to stress when I already have too much to do
Well it's still early days yet. This is day 6.
But at the moment I am feeling the pressure. What on earth I'm I going to write about next?
And what have I been doing today?
- 3 hours 6 minutes building and validating forms
- 2 hours 8 minutes working on Google Adwords
- 1 hour 54 minutes working on my networking group
- 1 hour 53 minutes journal entries, doing graphics, restructuring content
- 1 hour 29 minutes on twitter and networking forums
- 38 minutes doing business admin
Today's total: 11 hours 11 minutes
I spent more time than I planned on my own website because I realised that the heading tags h1, h2, h3 could be better structured. Google likes well structured and hierarchical headings. That took an hour that I hadn't banked on.
I think I need to spend less time on twitter and the networking forums. Tomorrow I should limit myself to 15 minutes on twitter before lunch and 15 in the afternoon.
Tomorrow I want to try and finish the dynamic forms I am building for a client. Then if I do that I have an idea for the journal involving some colourful graphics.
